UTS has a new logo
On August 8th, in a meeting with President Shimmyo at East Garden, our Founder approved the new logo design shown here. At a second meeting on September 21, the Founder signed his name on a copy of the logo. President Shimmyo later explained that, according to Kyeokam-yurok, a sixteenth century Korean book of prophecy, the white cross symbolizes the Lord of the Second Advent. The outer, broken circle represents the unity of heaven and earth.
The process of creating a new logo has been going on for some time. Several designs were proposed including some which showed the main Seminary building, the mountains and the river in diagrammatic form. When these and other, more abstract, designs were presented to Father, he pointed out that UTS is eternal while the Seminary building is not and he therefore selected a more symbolic design. The new logo will now be placed on T-shirts and sweatshirts which will be available in the Seminary bookstore.
